  1. Issues while using a different email address to Microsoft Store on Windows 10


    Hello


    I use 2 emails regularly, I own several products on my older email that I don't on my newer one, but I can't add my email for the microsoft store.


    Basically, the email I use for Windows 10 is my primary email that I use now, but my secondary email (my older one) has products that I don't own on my primary email. I wish to log in or be able to use my secondary email to download products I own on my secondary email on the same user account that I use with my primary email.


    Microsoft Store offers the ability to log in with a Work/School Email, I have tried to log into my secondary account this way, but it didn't work.


    I have tried adding another email address through Windows settings, but the Microsoft Store doesn't seem to acknowledge the existence of my secondary email address, so I can't download it.


    Just to confirm, I do have 2 emails attached to my user account, with my primary email being the master of the user account.


    How would I get around this?


    ***Title modified from How to 2 personal emails under the same user account?***

    :)

    Hide or Show Email Address on Sign-in Screen in Windows 10  


    Switched to local account.
    Email address is hidden on sign in page.
    As for Windows Store, I need to enter my MS account password. Just one extra step. No big deal.

    (step 6 in OPTION TWO) https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html

    My issue is settled.

    Issues while using a different email address to Microsoft Store on Windows 10

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
